Woodland Group

The Kippen Community Woodland Group has been busy keeping paths in Burnside wood clear and attempting to keep non-native species within the wood under control, stopping the spread of sycamore trees by cutting down saplings.

The Group will hold its Annual General Meeting on Thursday 16 November at 20.00 hours in the Cross Keys. If you are interested in finding out more about the work of the group or would like to influence our plans for next year, please come along. Donald Smith will be standing down after two productive years as Chair to the Group and nominations are welcomed.

Woodland work mornings are held on the first Sunday of the month, 10.00 – 13:00 meeting at the football pitch. Woodland mornings are scheduled to take place in 2017 on Sunday 1 October, 5 November and 3 December. If you are interested in joining us and would like to find out more, please email
